Names released in Iowa City officer-involved shooting

IOWA CITY — Authorities have released the names of two officers and a burglary suspect they shot in Iowa City.

The shooting occurred around 2:30 a.m. Thursday after the officers responded to burglar alarms at two businesses on the south side of the city.

The Iowa Public Safety Department said in a news release Tuesday that Officers Travis Neeld and Alex Stricker spotted 34-year-old Michael Caceres in the area and chased him on foot to a fenced area at Big Ten Rentals, where the shooting occurred.

Department Special Agent Ryan Herman said he could not yet comment on whether Caceres was armed or precisely what caused the officers to shoot him. Both officers are on administrative leave.

The department says Caceres remains hospitalized in stable condition.
